Geoffrey is found guilty of domestic abuse of his ex-girlfriend
Before Geoffrey appeared on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, he was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend, Kristen Wilson. On the stand during the live-streamed Court TV trial, Kristen took the stand. She explained that on the night of June 9th, 2019, Geoffrey repeatedly bashed her face into the steps and walls as he dragged her up and down the stairs. After this, Geoffrey kept her in her bedroom through intimidation and threats of violence. He kept her phone, keeping her from calling for help. After a while, she was able to run out of the house to a neighbor, where she called the police.
The photos taken of Kristen by the police show the terrible injuries caused by Geoffrey. She sustained two black eyes, a large knot on her forehead, and scrapes all over her face and body. However, he claimed that her injuries were all self-inflicted from falling down the stairs on her own.
However, after only an hour and 45 mins of deliberation, the jury came back with a guilty verdict. The charges include aggravated kidnapping, domestic violence, and interference of an emergency call. The former reality TV star is facing 8 to 30 years of jail time.
While Varya wasn’t present at the trial, she’s proving that she’s still in a relationship with Geoffrey. Not only that, but she believes he is innocent. As of right now, Geoffrey is currently in the Knox county correctional facility awaiting his sentencing hearing on December 3rd, 2021.
